WebBase Picks up Where Google Left OffBy Blane Warrene
The WebBase Project at Standford.
Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin spawned their world-class technology at Stanford and a new group has taken over and plan to focus on the development and testing of new algorithms for clustering, searching, mining, and classification of Web content.
The repository they are building is available to retrieve web pages from using online documentation. Additionally, one can run a local server that crawls web content and feeds it to the WebBase repository, a cool way to contribute if you have the bandwidth and server time available.
